Stuff I cooked haha...

Beware of artists

Mos Def is one of the most talented artist in the world. I do not know Mos Def but I wish I did, from simply listening to his music to watching the most random Youtube videos of him, I get a strong feeling for the mans character: "Cool as hell.". There is one video I recently watched that sticks out the most though; Mos Def was discussing how he gets paid at most of the shows he performs at(very humoriously might I add), and near the end he quotes Queen victoria. He says "Beware of artists - they mix with all classes of society and are therefore most dangerous..." -Queen Victoria. This quote and the explanation Mos Def gives immediately after stating it, not only attest to his wealth of knowledge and cleverness, but the quote in it self touches me on like a deep ass "DAMN" level. I cannot do it any justice through writing, so just watch the video.



I havent had the best night. But the funny thing is I have no one to blame. Maybe if I could stop pointn at this mirror Id feel bit better.



Church & State it is....Madvillain Theme jus helped me decide exactly what I wanted to do, all I could picture was burning croses and angry preachers pointing.

I need inspiration...

I honestly want to change my topic choice for my video, something a bit more calming. But my beliefs are both very critical of our nation, how can I possibly make a video essay about separation of church and state, or the downfall of America due to greed? It's possible but how?


I just wasted ten minutes creating a video that in no way related to my project, an effort not totally wasted though, I now have my creative juices flowing. I think I will focus on three artist in my video, MF DOOM (of course), Flying Lotus, and Mos Def.


Oh Yea I Love this Movie


There's nothing more refreshing (that cool refreshing drink)
Than a cool, crisp, clean glass of water
On a warm summer's day (That cool refreshing drink)
Try it with your friends

New World Water make the tide rise high
Come inland and make your house go "Bye" (My house!)
Fools done upset the Old Man River
Made him carry slave ships and fed him dead nigga
Now his belly full and he about to flood somethin
So I'ma throw a rope that ain't tied to nothin
Tell your crew use the H2 in wise amounts since
it's the New World Water; and every drop counts
You can laugh and take it as a joke if you wanna
But it don't rain for four weeks some summers
And it's about to get real wild in the half
You be buying Evian just to take a fuckin bath
Heads is acting wild, sippin poor, puffin dank
Competin with the next man for higher playin rank
See I ain't got time try to be Big Hank,
Fuck a bank; I need a twenty-year water tank
Cause while these knuckleheads is out here sweatin they goods
The sun is sitting in the treetops burnin the woods
And as the flames from the blaze get higher and higher
They say, "Don't drink the water! We need it for the fire!"
New York is drinkin it (New World Water)
Now all of California is drinkin it (New World Water)
Way up north and down south is drinkin it (New World Water)
Used to have minerals and zinc in it (New World Water)
Now they say it got lead and stink in it (New World Water)
Fluorocarbons and monoxide
Push the water table lopside
Used to be free now it cost you a fee
Cause oil tankers spill they load as they roam cross the sea
Man, you gotta cook with it, bathe and clean with it (That's right)
When it's hot, summertime you fiend for it (Let em know)
You gotta put it in the iron you steamin with (That's right)
It's what they dress wounds and treat diseases with (Shout it out)
The rich and poor, black and white got need for it (That's right)
And everybody in the world can agree with this (Let em know)
Consumption promotes health and easiness (That's right)
Go too long without it on this earth and you leavin it (Shout it out)
Americans wastin it on some leisure shit (Say word?)
And other nations be desperately seekin it (Let em know)
Bacteria washing up on they beaches (Say word?)
Don't drink the water, son they can't wash they feet with it (Let em know)
Young babies in perpetual neediness (Say word?)
Epidemics hopppin up off the petri dish (Let em know)
Control centers try to play it all secretive (Say word?)
To avoid public panic and freakiness (Let em know)
There are places where TB is common as TV
Cause foreign-based companies go and get greedy
The type of cats who pollute the whole shore line
Have it purified, sell it for a dollar twenty-five
Now the world is drinkin it
Your moms, wife, and baby girl is drinkin it
Up north and down south is drinkin it
You should just have to go to your sink for it
The cash registers is goin "cha-chink!" for it
Fluorocarbons and monoxide
Got the fish lookin cockeyed
Used to be free now it cost you a fee
Cause it's all about gettin that cash (Money)

Said it's all about gettin that cash (Money)
Johny cash (Money)
Roseland cash (Money)
Give me cash (Money)
Cold cash (Money)

Cash rules everything around me,

Gotta put this in video also

"Friends.. Romans countrymen.. lend me a dollar! Ahh-ha!"

This is my way of formulating ideas

Mr. Diamond(IMAGES teacher) wants me to force ideas out of my brain so I will type this, just for him. But this causes me to think can I included PUMAS? maybe somehow I can have a cut scene of a guy walking in PUMAS?


My video will be based on greed, and somehow I will burn money, include MF DOOM and Wu-Tang, and slander someone haha. SOMEHOW!


Some Ad work for a Project

It's not me

I must transform into a video editor within a month. :-/ I am the most anal person ever when it comes to Audio, I have tried music production and failed epically on account of my impatience and unquenchable thirst for perfection (at least something close to perfection). For me to combine this "analness" with actual video should be interesting, I think I'm gonna need more than a month with this one.



Some shots I took today on my way to school.

Since for some reason every time I actually try to embed the video, it tells me disabled I'll do the next best thing and give you the song. Still a very powerfull song nonetheless , enjoy.


Shadowy figures
Enjoying loud thumps of Saturday night specials
The pain expressed
Through their devilish eyes
And hungry bellies
Stems from sex addiction
Burnt finger tips
And shiny rims
Nothing comes from this phantom of a man
No joy no progress
Nothing but shells and clips
Flaming hot potatoe chips
With cheese to fuel the rage
Chicken and hugs keep the barrel greased
But all one can do is fall to their knees
Plead for another sip
Of the 5th of life they never got the chance to live
But hopefully the kids left behind might get
A link to the resources of the top 2%
Where are our books and CPU’s
No more rides with CPD’s
My life is destined for rows of steel
And two meals
But maybe I can save a young soul from this destiny
